Usable Segment IV – Princeton Avenue South to Stanford Avenue

Springfield IL rail project - 5th & 6th street rail overpasses doubletrackedThe next construction segment of the Springfield Rail Improvements Project, Usable Segment IV, extends from Princeton Avenue south to Stanford Avenue. It includes replacing the existing bridges at the 5th and 6th Street underpasses. It also includes construction of the new rail corridor to accommodate the eventual relocation of the 3rd Street tracks to 10th Street.

The necessary property has been purchased for this segment, and the design is nearing completion. The City plans on opening construction bids in June and begin work late this summer. The work will necessitate lane reductions on 5th and 6th Streets, but full road closures will be minimal and limited to nighttime and weekends.

The $44 million segment is being funded by a $22 million federal BUILD grant along with state and City money.
